11 Fashion Face Masks That Have Matching Shirts, Dresses, and Accessories

Published

on

In most cities, cloth face masks have become as commonplace as white T-shirts, and it hasn’t taken long for brands to infuse their creativity into face mask designs. Many designers dreamt up innovative iterations that boast oversized bows, intricate beading, or even 3D knit tongues.

With new inventive takes bubbling up each day, face mask trends, like matching sets have emerged, not without strings attached. Fashion statements that are leveraged on the public health crisis can seem insensitive or tone deaf. But, it’s not surprising that the fashion industry has decided to make something you wear beautiful—it is what fashion does. The reality is that we’ll be wearing face masks for the foreseeable future, and like any other wardrobe essential, some people will gravitate towards one that’s aesthetically pleasing.

These new matching sets first started unintentionally, as many brands’ first round of masks were made with upcycled deadstock fabrics from previous collections. Hemstelt and Collinda Strada’s masks match their dresses and printed button downs to a tee, Reformation’s latest campaign features floral face masks that match their billowy sundresses, and Camp Collection’s new masks correspond to their 70’s ringer tees. Cindy Crawford was even spotted clad in a tie-dye top and matching face mask on a recent Instagram post, proving that matching face mask sets are a wearable trend here to stay. Last season, the matching set was all about pastel knit sweaters. From Lele Sadoughi’s headbands, to Reformation’s floral dresses, here are 8 items and their corresponding face masks to buy now.

Amazon Kimono Cardigan Lets You Layer While Staying Cool

While we couldn’t wait to finally put our snow boots and heavy down coats away, we have to admit that summer fashion — no matter how fun it can be — sometimes feels like it’s missing something. Layers! The thing about layers is they are not solely about keeping you warm. They can really add some serious style to an ensemble as well!

In summer, though, we’re often just wearing a tank top and shorts — and that’s it. Anything else on top would leave us sweaty, uncomfortable and unhappy. It might look cute for about two minutes after we put it on, but the heat often shows no mercy. That’s why we need to be smart with our layering and keep things breezy, lightweight and breathable with a piece like this kimono-style cardigan!

You may have never thought of a cardigan as a go-to piece for hot summer days, but this one is definitely going to change your mind. In fact, you might even have to stop yourself from wearing it every single day — not that we think anyone would blame you!

Try layering it over a simple tank top and denim shorts, or even a cami with biker shorts and sneakers. It’s also very popular with reviewers as a cover-up for the beach and pool. Even more versatility is added when you throw a belt around your waist, should your outfit call for it. You don’t need Us to style you though. We already know this piece is going to look fabulous with just about anything hanging in your closet!

Turns out, stress and sense of smell are directly related

Published

on

By

There’s a reason why the wellness market is chock-full of lavender pillow sprays to help you fall asleep, and why so many of us keep bottles of peppermint essential oils on our desks to stay productive at work. The scent-brain connection is real, and legitimate research has shown that sniffing certain fragrances can have a major impact on your mood. But if your go-to calming scent concoction has suddenly stopped working, your stress levels could be to blame.

“Our sense of smell is intricately linked to our olfactory center of our brain—in fact our sense of smell is only one synaptic jump from our emotional brain which controls our stress response,” says Amy Galper, co-founder of the New York Institute of Aromatic Studies. To get super science-y for a second, your sense of smell (or “olfactory neuroanatomy”) is intertwined with the parts of your brain that control your emotions, including  the amygdala, hippocampus, and orbitofrontal cortex. When you sniff something, it has to get through all of these areas before it gets to the part of your brain that’s able to process the scent, which is why we often have such strong associations between fragrance and emotions. (Can you smell Axe Body Spray without thinking of your high school boyfriend? Because I cannot.)

“Because of this, aromas can trigger emotional and subsequent physiological responses to external stress and visa versa,” says Galper. “So if we are extremely stressed it can affect how our olfactory nerve cells respond to aromas.” says Galper.  In other words, your stress levels can change the way you process certain scents. So if you’ve gone from loving the scent of patchouli to suddenly wanting to throw every patchouli-scented candle in the garbage, your anxiety is a likely culprit.

A 2013 study put this theory to the test, and scientists showed people stress-inducing text and images (think: car crashes and wars) to see if it would change their sense of smell. “After anxiety induction, neutral smells become clearly negative,” Wen Li, one of the researchers behind the study, told Science Daily. “People experiencing an increase in anxiety show a decrease in the perceived pleasantness of odors. It becomes more negative as anxiety increases.” And why is that? According to researchers, in a “normal” (aka low-stress) smelling situation, it’s just the olfactory system that gets switched on, but when you start to get anxious, the emotional system also kicks into gear and becomes part of the processing stream.

While certain scents are considered to be universally calming, there’s no “one size fits all” essential oil for keeping you calm—particularly in times of high anxiety. Essential oils like rosemary, chamomile, lavender, pine, clary sage, or  marjoram have been shown to lower nervous energy and trigger a resting response in your body, so if your usual calm-down candle has stopped working, try introducing one of these into your routine. Just be warned: it may stop working the next time you flick on the news.

Porsche Design Releases a Watch to Coordinate With the 911 Targa 4S – Robb Report

Published

on

By

There’s something about finely tuned machines that just always complement one another. Case in point: if you’ve ever wanted the kind of watch that can hold its own against one of the world’s best cars, Porsche Design may finally have your answer.

Specifically created in conjunction with the marque’s launch of the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition sports car, Porsche Design’s newest chronograph also takes its inspiration from racing vehicles of the ’50s and ’60s. The first of four timepieces set for release, it was developed by Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur as a collector’s item using colorways and patterns taken straight from the company’s iconic cars.

Available exclusively to the lucky owners of the actual roadsters, every element was selected to mirror models from the vast archive. For example, the white second hand and green circles found on the dial are meant to evoke the 356’s speedometer while the embossed leather strap is cut from the same plush leather used in the automaker’s interiors.

The company chose titanium for the case material because of its light weight, corrosion-resistance and durability, not to mention the fact that it is often employed in race car engines for precisely the same reasons. It houses a WERK 01.100 movement which bears a chronometer certificate from the Swiss C.O.S.C.-Institute. Proving that no detail was considered too small to overlook, even the rotor was forged to resemble the Fuchs wheel, developed for the first Porsche 911. The limited-edition number that corresponds to the car is laser-engraved on the elaborate, largely transparent caseback.

Scheduled to go on sale this fall, the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Edition is a nostalgia-filled variant that draws from a bevy of sources in Porsche’s history. The two-seater has a dark, metallic cherry red paint job with crisp white racing stripes trailing from its headlights and a vintage crest fixed to the hood and hub covers originally used in 1963.

Beginning this month, the $14,000 watch will be offered exclusively at Porsche dealerships worldwide to future owners of the Porsche 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition.
